I made a decision that changed my life.
I made a decision that I was going to lose over 100 pounds in under a year. I made this decision after 40 years where fitness was not a priority and after reaching 325 pounds.
I decided to do it my way with my own plan!
I decided that the only way this journey was going to work for me was if I did it my own way and this meant setting some boundaries.
- I was NOT follow somebody else’s plan or fad diet
- I was NOT going to consider surgery
- I was NOT giving up things I enjoyed (beer, bourbon, BBQ, etc.)
- I was NOT going through this alone, I leveraged social media for motivation, accountability and to help others
I focused on the basics and turned to some things that had never let me down to guide my journey: project management and technology.
I also added in a touch of marketing by branding my journey as Operation Melt based on the comments I kept hearing that I was “just melting away!”
It worked! I went from 325 pounds to a half marathon in just 16 months!
I lost 100 pounds in just 9 months…. 120 pounds in a year…. over 130 pounds in 16 months and am still going strong!
Plus the weight loss is just part of the story! Sure I am smaller and healthier than I had ever been in my adult life! But I also have been able to achieve things I never thought possible and learned a ton about myself including that I have a superpower!
